I began taking Akido when I was very young, transitioned into wrestling in Jr. High and High School, and I began taking Gracie Jiu Jitsu when I was on active duty. I have never taken a martial art that includes kicking/striking, and in a fight, I would assume just immediately take it to the ground. Unfortunately, I quit taking Jiu Jitsu about two years ago, but I've been feeling the "itch" to get back into it. I recently made an agreement with a friend of mine, a Akido/ Jiu Jitsu guy, who said he will allow me to use his Akido dojo if I teach him some wrestling to compliment his Jiu Jitsu. I've also been considering looking around for a Budo school or combat Judo. I haven't rolled in a long time, and I'm really looking forward to it. Something to switch up my cardio would be nice, I hit the gym 5 days a week and I run 3-4 times a week, but the cardio you get from rolling around is something you just can't simulate in any other activity I've done so far.
